I booked this hotel for a visit to Cornell College, which was only 20 minutes away. Being in the travel industry for the last 12 years and having stayed at many hotels, The Hotel at Kirkwood provided quality accommodations with excellent customer service. The rooms are beautifully furnished and had everything a traveler could require. We were greeted every time... More

Beds are extremely comfortable and rooms are spacious, even the smaller ones. High end hotel in a part of the country where you wouldn't expect to find a hotel with this kind of amenities. Restaurant food was uniformly very good.

I've spent many nights at The Hotel at Kirkwood while in Cedar Rapids on business. The experience is one you don't expect. Modern design and furnishings plus a very nice restaurant have made my stays enjoyable and relaxing. This is a teaching center, the staff and students are well trained and accomodating.

We hosted a conference here and while it is pricey, you pretty much get what you pay for. One of the nicest luxury facilities I've ever worked with and perfect for a smaller sized conference as you end up pretty much owning the whole place. Everything is state of the art from meeting and breakout rooms to high end board... More

Although it is off-the-beaten path, this hotel is a teaching-hotel run by the hospitality students/teachers from Kirkwood Community College. The staff was very friendly and competent. The rooms were plush, clean, comfortable and quiet. The lobby & rooms were all very well decorated. We stayed as part of a park & fly rate. Although it is several miles from the... More

This is a great hotel to stay in. It was clean, quiet, and the staff was very courteous and professional. It's a little off the beaten path but well worth the stay. We will definitely stay there again.

My wife and I had a unplanned opportunity to spend a night here. We were traveling for early Christmas with family in the area.

We stayed at this hotel for my husband's birthday weekend. We could not have been more pleased. We were a little leery about the five-star rating, but it is well-deserved! The motel is beautiful.
